Another Independence Day has come and gone. But, as with past celebrations of America’s founding, there was a deluge of anti-American sentiment coming from the hard left. These individuals deemed it necessary to commemorate the Fourth of July by portraying America as a racist, sexist, and otherwise bigoted nation that has acted as an oppressor in the past and present.

The New York Times took a shot at the American flag, implying to its readers that the nation’s symbol has become divisive. In addition, left-wing members of Congress like Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO) and Maxine Waters (D-CA) expressed their belief that black Americans are still not free. Bush tweeted:

Author and podcaster Touré penned a piece for the Grio titled: “F**k Fourth of July: The only independence day I recognize is Juneteenth.” In the piece, he promoted the debunked narrative that the Revolutionary War was fought to preserve slavery.

Many other examples of hard-leftist hatred for America exist. Media watchdog site Newsbusters has compiled 20 of the worst statements coming from so-called progressives about America.

So what gives? Far-leftists have despised America for decades. Members of Congress who call themselves progressives decry the ills of American society like police brutality, poverty, and all kinds of injustice. Activists march and protest in the streets and on college campuses for equity. However, despite governing most of the areas in which the afflicted masses reside, they have done little to nothing to affect significant change.

In light of this reality, it is appropriate to ask: What exactly do these people want? What has to happen before the adherents of wokeism finally develop at least a modicum of respect and – dare I say it – love for the United States?

Leftists who rail against America are conspicuously quiet when it comes to laying out specific objectives. Take racism, for example; since racial bias can never truly be wholly extinguished,
